I visited this letterpress workshop as an assignment at my student_reporter job at SVA. Dikko Faust is a hand typograher and a letterpress printer who runs Purgatory Pie Press with his wife, Esther K. Smith, who wrote this great book, which I (and I'm sure many of graphic design students) own: HOW TO MAKE BOOKS

They have exhibited internationally, including shows at Smith College, Harvard University, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Metropolitan Museum Libraries. Collections holding their work include the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Tate, the Whitney, and the New York Public Library.

So inspiring!!!
